Romney is not and never has been Cain’s “good friend”.
That was a meme started by Perry supporters long ago to make people not trust Cain. Is this now going to be the new meme of the Gingrich supporters?
Cain endorsed Romney when the race was down to Romney and McCain, but in January he supported Huckabee and donated to his campaign.
I have provided proof over and over that Cain was critical Romney - on Romneycare, jobs, tax plan, missing the debates and more. He has said Romney and him are like water and oil and he is not interested in being on a ticket with Romney.
But people seem to hear only what they want to hear.
Cain has at numerous campaign stops referred to Mitt Romney as his good friend.
On THIS VERY CAMPAIGN, he named Mitt Romney as his #1 to be his V.P. if he wins the nomination:
-—”Cain, for his part, mentioned Romney first when talking about which fellow candidate he would most likely pick as vice president if he were the nominee.”-—
-—”A Cain aide is even more succinct, saying simply, They get along well.”-—
That's not a knock on Cain, because friendships cross ALL political spectrums. He can be friends with anyone and everyone, for crying out loud.
My point was that the reason he instantly though it was Perry and not Mitt is probably because Herman Cain is a man of honor who would never throw a personal friend under the bus like that; and because he is a man of honor, he never dreamed his friend Mitt would backstab him in such a dastardly fashion. All I am saying is, Herman doesn't understand the depths to which Romney will stoop to win power.
